276 Solutions to Exercises contains VI. Since there is an edge between Vi and Vi+I for i = 1,2, ... , n - 1, it follows that Vb V3, V5,··. are in ODD and that V2, V4, V6, .•. are in EVEN. Now Vi is in EVEN; otherwise, it is in ODD along with Vb an impossibility because there is an edge between Vi and VI. So EVEN and ODD have the same number of elements; m = n = !. (b) The graph is bipartite, as shown, and a subgraph of IC 3 ,4. Since IC3,4 is not Hamiltonian, neither is any subgraph. w B w W B Exercises 10.3 0 1 0 1 0 0 [ ~ 1 0 0 H 1 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 0 1.

(a) [BB] The (3,5) entry of A3 is the number of walks of length 3 from C to E and, hence, equals 5. The (2,2) entry of A3 is the number of walks oflength 3 from B to itself, hence, equals 2. (b) The (3,5) entry of A3 equals 2. The (2,2) entry of A3 equals 4. 4. [BB] Each 1 represents an edge. Each edge ViVj contributes two l's to the matrix, in positions (i,j) and (j, i). The number of l's is twice the number of edges. 5. The ith entry on the diagonal of A3 is the number of walks of length 3 from Vi to itself. However, a closed walk of length 3 in a graph must give a triangle. Every triangle can be walked in exactly two different directions. Hence, the number of walks of length 3 is twice the number of triangles....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
